So my list has been up for around a week now, right? I think that's about when we all started making these! I went back to it today and counted up the votes. Since you can do both thumbs up and thumbs down, and can vote for more than one, I subtracted the "thumbs downs" from the "thumbs ups" on each name and then put them in order.

Here's what it looks like (there are a few ties):

1. Theodore
2. Niccolo
3. Dante
4. Bertram
5. Gustav

1. Josephine
2. Delilah
3. Matilda
4. Georgia/Lilith
5. Susannah
6. Cordelia
7. Penelope
8. Margaret
9. Clementine/Lucasta

Is this similar to how you would rank them on your own?

And not exactly on topic, but which do you think make good sibling sets? Just curious.

Would you use nicknames for any of these names? For example I like Theodore, but I dislike Teddy... and if I knew what nn you would use it would help me choose.

Here's what I would cut it down to:

Boys:
1. Niccolo
2. Theodore
3. Dante

Girls:
1. I CANNOT decide which one I like more: Cordelia or Delilah. So they're tied at first for me.
2. Matilda (LOVE, this was almost a close tie to Cordelia and Delilah)
3. Penelope
4. Josephine
5. Lilith
6. Margaret

I only included the names I liked.
